PBS Annual Meetings 2019: Breakout Sessions

Vote for your favorite Breakout sessions January 7-11, 2019

PBS received 99 proposals from member stations, national producers, .orgs, consultants, and staff at PBS. Now it’s time for you to vote for our favorite sessions. To help you decide, click HERE to download a summary of the session details.


Why should I vote for my favorite sessions?

Online voting will help the planning team determine the most popular sessions; some of those sessions may be repeated. Your vote counts! Only 1 vote per IP address is permitted. Voters may vote for their favorite session in each voting category. Voting may inform the selection decision but will not determine the final line-up of Breakout Sessions. The Annual Meeting planning committee – with guidance from the PBS Senior Management Team – will determine the final list of breakout sessions.

Are you still accepting Networking Meet-Up topics?

YES! The 2019 Networking Meet-Up sessions will take place on the first day of the conference (Wednesday, 5/29/19) and will happen simultaneously in one or more rooms. Networking Meet-Up sessions are 45-minutes long, organized around a particular topic, designed for networking, information sharing, conversation, and discussion, and require a facilitator. Sessions may be held simultaneously at different tables in the same large room or scheduled in individual rooms (to be determined based on available space). A/V support in Meet-Up locations is not guaranteed. Similar topics may be combined to maximize space.
